Illinois Tech Pre-College Summer Programs FAQ—COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in Illinois Institute of Technology’s Pre-College Summer Programs. We understand that this is a stressful time due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is a list of frequently asked questions to help address some of your concerns as you think about your summer plans. 

If you have additional questions that are not addressed in this FAQ, please contact us at precollege@iit.edu.

Will you offer online summer programs?

Illinois Tech is offering a variety of online summer programs in June and July. Additional information about these programs will be posted soon.

Are you offering any in-person summer programs?

At this time, Illinois Tech is planning to offer a small number of in-person Pre-College Summer Programs as either day programs or residential programs. We are closely monitoring local health and safety guidelines surrounding COVID-19. We will determine by early April 2021 if we will make changes to the format of in-person summer programs and opt to offer them online. 

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, all residential programs will either change format to online or daytime or be cancelled. Please reference the program page you are interested in for the most up-to-date information. If you have previously submitted a deposit for a residential program and no longer wish to participate in the program’s new format, please email precollege@iit.edu before May 15 for a full refund.

What is your refund policy?

Please refer to the refund policy for Illinois Tech’s Pre-College Summer Programs. 

If you registered for one of our in-person day or residential programs and the program is converted to an online format due to health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, the pre-college team will reach out to you to confirm if you would like to participate in the online program. If you choose to participate in the online program, you will be refunded the price difference between the program formats. 

Can international students participate in pre-college programs?

All Illinois Tech online pre-college programs are open to international students. 

Does Illinois Tech offer any after-school enrichment opportunities?

Yes! Illinois Tech offers several ways for students to engage in STEM enrichment and learn about the university, including skill-building workshops, virtual field trips, and webinars. Please visit our Special Events page for more information.
